Exciting Upcoming Extracurriculars at EC

It is an exhilarating time of year at Elmira College, with a variety of highly-anticipated events just around the corner.

With Halloween creeping up on us, Columbia Hall has organized its seventh annual Trick-or-Treat and Haunted House event for local school kids. Children will Trick-or-Treat door-to-door throughout the building in a safe and supervised environment. Additionally, the Main Lounge is transformed into a Haunted House with activities geared specifically toward children of all age groups, creating the ultimate Halloween experience in one stop!

The Elmira College Community is preparing for the upcoming Big Event. Citizen Cope will be performing in Speidel Gymnasium on November 4 at 8:00 p.m. You may have heard one of his more famous hits, “Son’s Gonna Rise,” in a GM Pontiac commercial.

Perhaps the most exciting of all is the return of our winter sports teams to action. Tonight, Hoops Hysteria kicks off the Men’s and Women’s Basketball season with a showcase of talent, enthusiasm, and most importantly- giveaways. In addition to a 3-point shooting contest and two pick-up games, the event will feature performances by the Elmira College Nationally-Ranked Cheerleading team and Danceline, and throughout the night, t-shirts and prizes will be given away to those in attendance.

This weekend, the Men’s Ice Hockey team has its home-opener against Oswego. The men look to continue their success from last year, and have set their sights again on a Championship. The Women’s team jumpstarts their season with a home-opener against Buffalo State College on November 6. Last year, the women were ECAC West Champions and competed in the National Championship game against Amherst. They look to bring home EC’s third National title this year.

Students, faculty, and administrators alike look forward to a successful winter athletics season and many fun events on campus!
